For $79.99 USD, the Ultimate Edition includes Halo Wars 2 with 4-day early access, the game’s season pass, and Halo Wars: Definitive Edition.

“The Halo Wars 2: Ultimate Edition is your gateway to Early Access for Halo Wars 2, allowing you to download and start playing four days before the game’s standard release date.

The Halo Wars Season Pass delivers regular updates that span more than six months and includes new Leaders with abilities that change the course of multiplayer battles, new Units that add to your multiplayer arsenal, a new campaign expansion with exclusive missions, and even more content to be announced soon.

Halo Wars: Definitive Edition is an enhanced version of the original Halo Wars that runs natively on Xbox One and Windows 10. Halo Wars: Definitive Edition includes improved graphics and all of the DLC created for the classic real-time strategy game.”

Halo Wars 2 features a 13 mission campaign set after the events of Halo 5: Guardians that tells the story of Captain Cutter and his crew, having spent years adrift on the UNSC Spirit of Fire following the end of Halo Wars. The story will see our heroes face off against a terrifying new faction known as The Banished, led by Brute warlord Atriox, on the legendary Halo location known as The Ark.

Halo Wars 2 will also, of course, include a huge multiplayer suite like its predecessor:

“Play with or against your friends and the Xbox Live community in up to 3v3 matches. All-new Units with explosive firepower, Leaders with special abilities that help to turn the tide in battle, and thrilling multiplayer modes are at your fingertips as you battle on a variety of maps.”

Halo Wars 2 launches February 21st 2017 for Xbox One and Windows 10 PC – get it digitally and own it for both platforms via Xbox Play Anywhere!
